Reduce[Meter == Floor[a*Sqrt[19] + 7] &&
Meter < 6 && (a == -1 || a == 1), {a, Meter}]
a == -1 && Meter == 2

Ken, Sqrt returns by definition the *positive* root.
Your question would have been legit (with its syntax properly fixed) for
the negative root, but this must be handled by adding minus (-Sqrt[19])
explicitly.
Can anyone help to reformulate the problem to handle both signs elegantly?
Thanks
